Suspected burglar shot by Spokane homeowner told deputies he thought he was in friend’s house

SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. – The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office says a homeowner shot a suspected burglar after discovering him in his kitchen late Saturday night in West Spokane.

Deputies responded to the report of a burglary in progress at a home in the 2600 block of N. Colville Rd. around 11:55 p.m. on Saturday, April 4.

A victim said her husband was armed and had located an unknown male, later identified as 29-year-old Kenneth B. Caldero, inside the home. As deputies responded, a 911 operator advised two shots had been fired, and Caldero had reportedly fled from the home after being shot in the groin.

Deputies located Caldero upon arrival, who was yelling for help and bleeding profusely from his thigh a short distance from the home. After being detained safely, deputies gave medical attention to Caldero applying a tourniquet with assistance from an Airway Heights Police officer. Medical personnel arrived shortly after and attended to Caldero.

    Hopefully Mr Caldero has been changed from a bull into a steer, so he can’t pass along his “stoopid” gene to a next generation.
    “I thought I was at a friend’s house”, indeed. What a crock.

    • MI Ranger says:

      If you only read AW1Ed’s summary, it would sound like the home owner was aggressive in his encounter with Mr. Caldero, who was washing dishes and heating up a snack in the microwave. An normal thing to do when you visit a friends house…then you read the full story, where he moves to go upstairs, and then tries to take the gun, then does it again…this time getting shot in the groin!
      The lying sack of shit got what he deserved, and the homeowners are lucky they had peace of mind to confront him with a weapon and use it!

  2. Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman says:

    Shot in the left hand. Ouch! That’s gonna leave him with a limp grip. He needs to find another future occupation.

  3. Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman says:

    A bunch’a 3rds in that third rate third story. I wonder how much of a workout Claw’s Whiz Wheel would get from this story?

    • Claw says:

      The Whiz Wheel®™ barely broke a sweat spinning up the scores:

      Jackson III (DAM) = 176
      Leslie III (DOT) = 57

      As To the other involved party whose name was not released (but found in another story), that name was Nasir Kareem and he spun up a WRT score of 34.

      Again, As To, the motive behind all this was who got snaked/dissed in a Booty Call./smile

    Someplace between Wisconsin and Wyoming.

    • Hack Stone says:

      It’s been a while since Hack has been to Philadelphia, what with that contract on his life, but Hack believes that neighborhood may be part of Philadelphia known as “The Badlands”.

  5. 5th/77th FA says:

    A poor man’s trifecta with an added DOT. Maybe the 3 in the hospital can pick up a bonus virus or sepsis…or something. It is good to read of the trash taking out the trash. You have so much of that going on in and around Dekalb ’cause of that big raciss rock on the skyline.

    “…between Wisconsin and Wyoming.” Heh…Must be, the perp was placed in a “stable condition.”

    When I FIRST looked at the Bullpup wannabe pr0n, I immediately thought of a Thumper with a bandolier of 40mm. sigh

    • Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman says:

      “……..a Thumper with a bandolier of 40mm. sigh”

      That WOULD be Grade A Weapon Pr0n indeed. (sigh…….)

    • The Al says:

      That’s not just any bullpup shotgun- that particular model pictured can hold up to 25 rounds of 2.75 inch 12-gauge goodness. Only 21 rounds if you use 3-inch magnum rounds

      • Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman says:

        How many if loading the new shortie (1 3/4″?) shot shells?

        • The Al says:

          41- 20 per tube plus one in the chamber. Of course, after firing all 41 rounds you can then crush a man’s skull with your forearms

  6. Did the pizza shop robber ask the shop owner to hand over a slice of pizza or hand over some dough. I’ve got to give a hand to the owner for having the gun handy, and was able to handle the situation so it didn’t get out of hand but he needs some range time for hitting the perp in the hand instead of center mass. And while we are on the subject of firearms, can any of you out there give me some advice about how I can rack a frozen slide on my High Standard Victor .22. The top ramp prevents me from pulling the slide back and I have to use only two fingers to pinch the rear of the slide. I can’t even get a purchase point between the slide and feed ramp to maybe get a small wood wedge in and try and work the slide from there. Am waiting for some suggestions. Since staying home, I just had to drag my handguns out of the safe and do some lube and wipe down and ordered gun paper and bags from Brownells to store them. I only have them wrapped up in cotton auto rag wipes. Ordered a bottle of Oxpho bluing creme to replace the 40+ year bottle I had which was just about empty and dried up.

    • David says:

      Have you considered sacrificing a cleaning rod by running it down the barrel from the muzzle and whacking it? Worst you would probably do is trash the rod. Small length of wood dowel would work too.

    • AW1Ed says:

      Douse with penetrating oil and let sit. A couple taps with a plastic headed mallet might do the trick.

    • 11B-Mailclerk says:

      You did run a cleaning rod down the barrel to check for a round stuck in the gun, right? (Grin)

      Need the manual for a Hi-Standard?

      You might be able to remove the barrel, exposing the face of the slide for direct persuasion with a dowel and mallet. Some pistols have a button to push, some a lever, and some a hex-screw. The barrel may also be stuck. Every one I have removed is -tight-. (For the “small-button” type, you have to get the button all the way into the frame.)

      Avoid exposing the plastic grips to exotic penetrating oils.

      • David, AW1Ed and 11B-Mailclerk;

        Thanks for the tips guys. Last night I was thinking of penetrating oil but decided to wait for morning. After reading your tips, I ended up going to our storeroom cage and got a 3/16in. dowel and cut it off a few inches from the barrel end and inserted the dowel, turned the gun upside down, tapped once and the reciver came loose slicker than snot. I did this method a few times years ago when I had a CH progressive reloading press and once in awhile the cartridge didn’t get the Bullseye powder in it and when I shot at the range, I got the bullet head stuck in the barrel and I used a wooden handle cleaning rod to clear it. I don’t know why I didn’t think of your suggestions but I want to say thanks again for the help. I checked my 1995 reprint of the 1954 Hi Standard guide but was in a rush and the guide doesn’t cover the Victor model but it is similar to the Mil. models. I must be getting old and the old noodle isn’t what it used to be.

        • David, AW1Ed and 11B-Mailclerk

          I spoke too soon Guys. I was able to rack the slide with a little bump from the dowel BUT after I took off the barrel and slide to oil it and then put it together, I pulled the trigger and then when I tried to rack it again, I couldn’t pull back the slide unless I bumped it with the dowel and cocked it. I put a little Starret instrument oil on the hammer and worked it up and down which was very hard to do. I wonder if it has anything to do with the hammer spring which is hidden inside the grip and not visible where my S&W Mod 14 is visible as soon as the grips are taken off. The slide slides slicker than snot when the hammer is down so maybe like I mentioned above, it could be the hammer spring.

          • 11B-Mailclerk says:

            The manuals at that site cover most models, and show diagrams of all parts.

            You might have rust or gunk in action parts such as the springs.

            Do be careful. Parts are hard to acquire and spendy.

            I have a Supermatic 101 that Mom used for smallbore bullseye.

    • rgr769 says:

      I would suggest you first put some PB Blaster or Break-free on the edges of the slide (firing block) and let it soak into the rail surfaces overnight. Then, as suggested, use a section of .22 cleaning rod down the barrel to strike the face of the firing block. Use either a brass rod section, aluminum or a steel one, but screw a plastic rod tip into it so you won’t mar the face of the firing block/slide. Finally, if that doesn’t work you will have to resort to what I did with a friend’s 1858 Remington New Army repo that had its cylinder rusted firmly to the cylinder axle. It required the use of a torch and some pounding, but we salvaged what would otherwise be a large paper weight.

      • rgr769 says:

        Glad to see you fixed the problem. Now I am going to the gun safe and take a look at my Woodsman and Hi-Standard HD Military and hit both with a little oil.

      • rgr769;

        The problem is that the firing block/slide are very hard to pull back against the hammer so as to set it in the firing position. When I had the slide off, I tried working the hammer against the hammer spring and the hammer was very hard to push down with my thumb. The slide on the Victor Military 107 has to be grabbed between the thumb and first finger to get a purchase on it to be able to rack it. Maybe my age has something to do with it now but I don’t think so. The other 10 semi autos I have, I am able to rack the slides with no difficulty.

    “…the two victims were standing outside a home on Needle Rock Drive about 11:45 p.m.”
    Man! They run their street prayer circles late ‘round there! Maybe stick to daylight hours? 5:30am wake ups for work come early, no?

  8. Fjardeson says:

    That shotty is gonna be my next purchase after the ‘Rona crisis is over. Always wanted one of those.

    • Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman says:

      Use your ‘Rona Gubberment Stimulater Check?

      • 5th/77th FA says:

        Wonder if Imma ‘rona getz a gubmint check? What I really ‘rona getz is that Thumper we talked about…with a bandolier or 6 of 40 mike mike. (sigh…) That would stimulate something.

      • Fjardeson says:

        TDR: Yours truly is in IT. I make too much cabbage to qualify for the ‘Rona Fleet-Ex 2020 bonus check.
